A fantastic shot, Bob. Did you put a flash in the background to get that effect? Glad to see you working the night again. Wish I were young enough to do that.

+1.

It's nice to see a bit of what your Florida night shots have even in a location that is obviously not Florida.

Thanks, Russ. ... There's a big light behind the caretaker's house, hence the eerie effect (handheld ISO 3200).

I like too. That said, if you would crop off the bottom part with the footprints and tire marks it would become even better.  :)

Being that it's a trailer park, I think the street--footprints and tire marks help tell the story. My intent was to make the trailer park look like a winter wonderland.

I suspected as much, since that's the way I felt the image.

There'll always be a cropper, no matter what you post. To a cropper, no picture is complete until it's been cropped. Just ignore it.

What, you've never cropped an image? Damn, you're good!

Rarely, but when I do it's because I knew I was going to crop when I tripped the shutter. I don't ask people whether or not I should crop.

Here's a demo of the effects of unplanned cropping:

Mis-
I do crop whether or not I should.

See how cropping improved that statement?   :D  :D  :D

Not sure what the general objection is to cropping.  We can always choose to ignore input from others regarding cropping.  In the end, it's just a tool that many choose for a variety of reasons.

Yes. The reason usually is that they hadn't a clue what they really were after when they made the original shot. Refusing to crop, as HCB did, seems a bit extreme, but only a bit. The idea, Cam, is to compose on the camera.

I fully understand composing in the camera but not every image I take is suited for the format ratio of the camera.  For example, I often do a series that are in a square format.  If not cropping works for you great.  I choose not to be that limited.  To each there own!

Hi Cam,

As I said, if your composition doesn't fit on the camera you may need to crop. Actually, if you're shooting square pictures you have two choices: (1) frame your square image squarely on a 3 to 2 or 4 to 3 or 5 to 4 aspect ratio camera and then crop. (2) Buy a 2 1/2 x 2 1/4 camera.

You don't say where you are, but from your post I gather English isn't your first language.
